Anemia Has Been Linked to Hearing Loss
A recent study in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery has demonstrated that iron deficiency anemia has been associated with hearing loss.
If you have been diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia, it is important to treat the anemia and to schedule a hearing evaluation.
Hopefully early treatment of anemia will prevent hearing loss. However, since the condition has been linked to hearing loss, a baseline hearing evaluation is a good step as part of your overall healthcare.
